*****KatKwery! - Sep 19 - a dozen days left*****

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
You would think that winning 22,000 points, the highest payout in the history of KatKwiz, that she would be satisfied. But, oh, no! She continues on her streak of which I am afraid to check, by using the word mind. And starting very late in the season, GoldyCat won by using read. Let's see now, would that be read or read? Not scoring points were open, remember, and equal.

Today's KatKwiz was about wiping out the KatKwiz bank.

Assuming you read (or would that be read), today's KatKwiz, did you have any idea that many points would be won? Had you ever clicked on View Source before? Are you sure you now know the difference between keywords and phrases and how to denote them? Do you have any experience at all with HTML? Do you think I will be able to successfully transfer all of the KatKwiz bank account into the marianjela bank account by the end of the year?

Remember, these are not real questions, just a prompt to help you use the secret words which even I do not know yet.

Just to save you the time... it's a streak of 18, not that I am counting, really - I am keeping track of the questions/answers/winners in an Excel database and I have it set-up to automatically count everyone's wins. Anyway, thanks again for the win Lee. At this point it isnt about the points, I'm simply playing for the fun of it now. In fact, like I mentioned earlier, I have already come up with a plan to hand a majority of the points back out. And I anticipate that it will only add to the KatKwiz/KatKwery experience, not take from it. Anyway, I dont want to seem ungrateful - thank you very much for all my points Lee. I owe probably 75% of my bank to you and the members who have donated to you!

Honestly, I didnt think that I would win yesterday's Kwery, but thank you. Let's see if I have it in my today...

When I went to the KatKwiz today it was simply to be prepared for the Kwery. I didnt sign on until late in the afternoon so I was totally surprised that it was an on-going Kwiz today. It really offered a lot of members the opportunity to rack up some points.

Then when I started checking on all the keywords, I got worried, when I seen how many there starting to be. Actually, when I gave my first answer, I was well aware of the sub-forums, but I didnt want to give that answer right away. I thought that once someone seen my answer, they would realize where to look and go there. But when no one did, I submitted my second answer after two and a half hours passed and the contest was almost over. I have clicked on view source before, and correct me if I am wrong, I believe we have gone over this before in a Kwiz. I remember looking up meta tags before, and I think the Kwiz is where I learned it from to begin with. Anyway, if you use FireFox it is even easier to look up keywords than if you use IE. You can right-click on the page and select "View Page Info" and it will list all of the keywords for you.

I have an online blog/journal that I keep regarding Joshua's health to keep friends and family updated on his progress. Well the journal started out as a simple pre-made page. All I had to do was type in my message, just like an email or something. But then, I wanted more out of it, so I wandered over to a MySpace page so I could add more pictures and music, with the coaxing of my kids. I learned a little about HTML and CSS codes while I was there, but quickly go border with their format and transferred his whole journal from CaringBridge over to Google's Blogger. There I really started to learn about codes, and tags, etc.

It's kinda of funny, I remember when I got my first computer, my middle daughter who is now 13, was hmmm... 3 at the time, so about ten years ago. Anyway, I didnt know the difference between browsers then. In fact, I very first used AOL, so I was even more clueless. My point is, since then, my knowledge on the compute rhas come a LONG way. I am aware of using quotes when I do a search if I want to narrow my results down, or using the words "and" or "or". In fact I think I first learned about those tips from shopping on Ebay!

As for the last question - is that rhetorical or what? Sorry guys, really I am not trying to hog up all the points. I really am just trying to play along side the rest of you all. I really enjoy the contests on here. Sometimes the KatKwery is the only reason I come to TCS in a day.

Anyway, I have plans on Paying It Forward. These contests arent about winning points for me, but I enjoy the interactions with everyone!

Guess that's it for now. Thanks again Lee - and to all his benefactors. I really do appreciate the chance to just play!

once more, i was WAY too late to even attempt the Kwiz - altho i'd've known how to find the tags, since i've used the view source info before for other things... i know the difference between keywords & phrases - been using "quotes" around stuff in search engines for years! i have very little experience w/HTML, assuming you're talking about writing w/it. all of the pages i've created were with the help of a sitebuilder of some sort. i know it stands for hypertext markup language, but that's about it looks like Marianjela is going to be a major source to be reckoned with, come time for the playoffs - i certainly don't look forward to competing against her! good thing it'll take a round [or 2] before that would occur [if ever!] for me...
i use Camino for my mac's browser, & the view source is an option there, as well as in Firefox [which i use at school on the PC]. don't think i've looked using Safari, but i'd bet it's an option there, as well. [Safari is the browser the mac came with, btw].

Coming in late once again, Ill give a try I guess. I did not read todays Katkwiz so I have no idea of what you are talking about so Im guessing! Im burning DVD's at the same time so lets see if I can walk and chew gum at the same time! I knew that there would be a lot of points won during katkwiz and katkwery, I know its over a half million during the year but Im not sure the exact number! I dont even know where view source is so once again a learning experience would happen if I would go read the katkwiz! Of course if I was actually go look I would probably realize I do know what it is but Im being lazy! Im never totally sure of anything, I mean, it could change tomarrow for all we know! I dabble with html a little bit but not enough to make a successfull site! I can make a homepage and stuff like that, but I normally just avoid html and css at all costs to make my life a little easier! Umm.. Well you might have a weird decimal point of some odd points remaining so it might be possible to donate most off them to her but unless there are no numbers behind the decimal point it would be impossible to donate them all without leaving you with some strange fraction of a point! I dont know if thats what you meant by that at all and I cant read your mind and know what you're thinking so thats my guess! Have a good night yall!

I'm beginning to see where I went wrong, and why it took me so long to find the keywords (didn't get any points because the keywords were all used up by the time I posted ). Number one problem: I wasted a lot of time trying to find a link in thecatsite instead of something on my computer. Second problem: I don't have a right mouse button, therefore no way to do a right click.

Once I decided I wasn't going to find the link on TCS by trial and error, I started doing a google search on the various words and phrases that I thought might fit, and came up with TCS on most of them. However, that's a very slow process and and it's still a guessing game.

I finally starting clicking on all the drop-down menus in my browser and (dare I admit it?) accidently came across the "view source" option. I was able to locate all the keywords utilized by TCS. Unfortunately, marianjela had gotten there first.

I did know that quotation marks are required to do a search for a keyword phrase, as opposed to separate words. I even used the quotes when I was doing the google search. It never occurred to me to use them in my posted answer since the keywords listed in the source were not in quotes.

BTW, forgot to say thanks for the points from yesterday's KatKwery.

A rough idea, I didnt count the keywords : )

Had you ever clicked on View Source before?
Yes, plenty!

Are you sure you now know the difference between keywords and phrases and how to denote them? Do you have any experience at all with HTML?
I do know the difference between keywords and phrases, and yes I do know about HTML...or rather, I did, I expect Ive forgotten most of it. I used to design websites all the time!

Do you think I will be able to successfully transfer all of the KatKwiz bank account into the marianjela bank account by the end of the year? I wouldnt be surprised!!

Actually they werent all used up. There were at_least 16 others and I was really surprised you didnt come up with them since you were the only other one to list the forums, I thought for sure you would come back with the sub-forums too. I purposely left time so that someone would figure it out and post them.

Not to mention that EVERY single thread posted on this site has it's own keyword "phrase" So that was a very risky question yesterday. But a lot of fun.

For example, if you look at the keywords for this KatKwery, you will find:

*****KatKwery! - Sep 19 - a dozen days left*****, cat forums , cat forum, cat boards

Every thread has it's title as a keyword. Just as every forum and sub-forum does.

Anyway, good job on finding the "view source" in the drop down menu! The first time I did it - that's what I did too... used the "view" menu.

I didn't realize I was allowed to come back and add more once I posted the keywords I found. In my google searches I did discover that the individual threads had their unique keywords. I just didn't think you intended for us to go into that much detail. I could have broken the bank.

Actually, we couldnt come back and add to it. I tried that. I thought "no limit" meant you could, but I was wrong. Not that I'm complaining because I had a huge win yesterday as it is...

as far as what *I* intended regarding detail - lol - this isnt my contest. I'm just pointing out that every individual thread did indeed carry it's own Meta Tag/keyword/keyword phrase. I dont know if Lee realized each one had it's own when he started the contest. I didnt realize each had it's own keyword either until I started searching. And hey, I didnt want to break the bank either
